So lovely. It makes me all warm inside. It makes me feel how life's supposed to feel, full and bulging indeed. Keep on, D.T.

So much said and ready to digest in a perfectly shaped musing.

What a gem!

This is a joy-bringer for certain sure, Nordette, and certainly feels good reading YOU again! :)) Love the steady, surefootedness of your stream of consciousness here, lightly meandering with the ready cheer of a helium-filled balloon, confident and resolute in its non-resolutions. A beautiful poetic MWAH if ever there was one, blown by ruby lips and sent jauntily on its way... As Eileen rightly says, you always give us poetics that inspire, and to which we aspire. Dream on! :)) xx

The vernacular of this gestation was worth waiting for! Not often is it that I witness a birth so full of literary subsidy that I crave, not pickles, Nordette. I am addicted to the shape of poetry, and you and I did the cleavage thing, and now the belly. I kept the umbilical cord of Reading You Again, the metaphor secured and stored in my turtle shape beaded pouch like the Native Americans did with their baby girl's umbilical cord. It's amazing to think what independence and the freedom of an untamed soul can give back to the literary community in shapes, my flames and your circles...I see it from the mind's eye, to be a fertile shape of in-vitro Petri dish incarnation to perhaps what we would have said to each other in a past life...non-judgmental of skin color or sexual preference, of course...likewise, it is always a distinct pleasure to read your work. I am honored to be in your company, Nordette, today...and always...be well.

Love,
Sage
